Install the Reportico Module File

After purchasing and downloading the zip file you will need to install it into your Joomla site.

Use the standard Joomla Extension Manager facility to install the zip file, for example using the following screen.

Note that if the installation fails with the error "There was an error uploading this file to the server." then the most likely cause is that your PHP upload limit is set at the default 2Mb. The module is almost 4Mb. For a system installed on your own webserver server your will need to increase the limit in your php.ini file. For a hosted site this is not normally a problem but should the issue arise, you will  to contact your internet provider to request an increase in the limit.
